What Is Finance?
Finance is a term for matters regarding the management, creation, and study of money and investments. Finance can be broadly divided into three categories, public finance, corporate finance, and personal finance. There are many other specific categories, such as behavioral finance, which seeks to identify the cognitive (e.g., emotional, social, and psychological) reasons behind financial decisions.
The Basics of Finance
Finance, as a distinct branch of theory and practice from economics, arose in the 1940s and 1950s with the works of Markowitz, Tobin, Sharpe, Treynor, Black, and Scholes, to name just a few. Of course, topics of finance—such as money, banking, lending, and investing—had been around since the dawn of human history in some form or another.
Today, “finance” is typically broken down into three broad categories: Public finance includes tax systems, government expenditures, budget procedures, stabilization policy and instruments, debt issues, and other government concerns. Corporate

Finance is a term for matters regarding the management, creation, and study of money and investments. 
Specifically, it deals with the questions of how and why an individual, company or government acquires the money needed – called capital in the company context – and how they spend or invest that money.  Finance is then often split per the following major categories: corporate finance, personal finance and public finance.
At the same time, and correspondingly, finance is about the overall “system”
– i.e. the financial markets that allow the flow of money, via investments and other financial instruments, between and within these areas;
this “flow” is facilitated by the financial services sector.
A major focus within finance is thus investment management — called money management for individuals, and asset management for
For investors remaining sidelined after the market’s impressive bounce back, the opportunity may now be too enticing to ignore. According to J.P. Morgan strategist Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, COVID-19 will drive equity supply growth as companies pivot away from buybacks in an effort to raise capital, with 2019 marking the first time since 2015 that the net supply of shares, or the share issuance adjusted for de-listings and buybacks, increased materially.Alarming for investors, the previous decade-long trend of declining equity supply in part fueled the market’s bull run as buybacks pushed earnings higher.
